Reviews for 2011 Fleur Petrus, La Bordeaux Blend

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
This is nicely packed for the vintage with flavors of apple wood cherry preserves and sandalwood laced with black tea and plum notes on the finish. A step up in range and depth. Tasted non-blind.-J.M.

Tasted at JP Moueix. I left my sample of La Fleur-Petrus to unfurl over five minutes and it was worth the wait.

I left my sample of La Fleur-Petrus to unfurl over five minutes and it was worth the wait. It unfolds with lovely floral aromas: rose petals sprinkled over red fruits and a scent of oyster shell emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine silky tannins a gentle but insistent grip in the mouth and a layered cassis and dark plum fruit profile that is elegant and yet powerful. This is another sensual 2011 from Mon. Moueix and his team. Tasted April 2012.

A wine with well-integrated fruit and tannins with chocolate orange peel and berries. Full body yet polished and reserved.

A medium ruby color is followed by a vivid nose of sweet kirsch, raspberries, flowers and dusty, loamy soil notes. This terrifically scented 2011 is medium-bodied, quintessentially elegant, and loaded with flavor. Obviously, the Moueixs have dedicated considerable time and money to upgrade this terroir as recent vintages have been among the most impressive wines I have ever tasted from La Fleur-Petrus. This relatively forward 2011 Pomerol should drink well for 10-15 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

This 14.5-hectare estate adjacent to Lafleur and Le Gay and directly opposite Petrus was acquired by the Moueix family in 1953. Dark rim with a translucent core. This effort is all about elegance and balance with substantial but well managed and integrated tannins equally matched by fruit and acidity. A blueberry pie note makes this somewhat playful along with hints of cherry cola truffle and earthy meats adding an extra layer of complexity. The wood plays out on the finish so give this beauty some time and enjoy through 2030. Annual production approximately 3500 cases.
